A. Cunningham74 listed 63 symmetrical numbers aoa^aiao each a .product of two symmetrical numbers of 3 digits, and all numbers n3, n< 10000, and all n5, n7, n9, n11, n<1000, ending with 2, 7, 8, symmetrical with respect to 2 or 3 digits, as 6183= 236029032.
Pairs75 of numbers whose 1. c. m. equals the product of the digits.
Pairs76 of biquadrates, cubes and squares having the same digits.
*P. de Sanctis77 noted a property of numbers to the base h?+l.
L. von Schrutka78 noted that 15, 18/45 in 745 = 105, 6-18 = 108 and 945=405 are the only numbers of two digits which by the insertion of zero become multiples.
G. Andreoli79 considered numbers N of n digits to the base k whose rth powers end with the same n digits as'AT". Each decomposition of k into two relatively prime factors gives at most two such N'a. If the base is a power of a prime, there is no number >l whose square ends with the same digits.
Welsch80 discussed the final digits of pth powers.
H. Brocard81 discussed various powers of a number with the same sum of digits.                        __
A. Agronomof82 wrote N for the number obtained by reversing the digits of N to base 10 and gave several long^formulas for ^J2i J.
The820 only case in which.N2—N2 is a square for two digits is 652 — 562=332. There is no case for three digits.
R. Burg83 found the numbers N to base 10 such that the number obtained by reversing its digits is a multiple kN of N, in particular for fc = 9,4.
E. Lemoine84 asked a question on symmetrical numbers to base 6.
H. Sebban85 noted that 2025 is the only square of four digits which yields a square 3136 when each digit is increased by unity. Similarly, 25 is the only one of two digits.
R. Goormaghtigh86 noted that this property of the squares of 5, 6 and 45, 56 is a special case of A2—B* = 1... 1 (to 2p digits), where A = 5...56, B=4.. .45 (to p digits). Again, the factorizations 11111 =41-271,1111111 =2394649 yield the answers 1152,1562 and 22052, 24442.
